My friend Mehmuna is Asian - Pakistani and so in order to fit in with the culture I wore the traditional Asian attire.
I just love all the glitz and glam of the sparkles and detail of this traditional dress.
The occasion started off with of course getting the Bride to be ready for the camera and looking absolutely stunning for her party, with her closest friends and family and the same for her Husband to be Azeem.
Don't you think Mehmuna looks absolutely amazing. I love the outfit and think she looks a million dollars and I'm getting so excited for her big day.
The make up close up.
We then arrived at the venue. A lovely Asian cuisine restaurant that served the food in a buffet like fashion.
The first aspect of the evening consisted of the receiving of gifts from Azeems side of the family to Mehmuna. The table and layout of the gifts looked gorgeous.
Along with the beautiful cake...
And my favourite part. The display of the bride and groom rings. This is such a beautiful idea and I will sure be stealing this idea when it comes to my own engagement/wedding.
Next came the exchange of rings. I think this is such a special and intimate part of the evening.
It was so lovely to see the love between them.
The best celebratory event happened next. And to anyone with a sweet tooth, you will like this part too. This is the cutting of the cake. This is very much an English idea too at the Traditional English weddings.
The colour scheme and the cake all fit so perfectly and the whole evening was so special and magical.
So all that is left to say is a Huge Huge Congratulations! And I wish you all the best now and in the future for both of you and I'm sure you will both be very happy together.
Lots of love to you both from us Bridesmaids, myself and Saira.
To the happy couple....
Mehmuna and Azeem - Congratulations on your engagement!
